60:1 “Arise! Shine! For your light arrives!
The splendor 1 of the Lord shines on you!
60:2 For, look, darkness covers the earth
and deep darkness covers 2 the nations,
but the Lord shines on you;
his splendor 3 appears over you.
60:3 Nations come to your light,
kings to your bright light.
60:19 The sun will no longer supply light for you by day,
nor will the moon’s brightness shine on you;
the Lord will be your permanent source of light –
the splendor of your God will shine upon you. 4
